We went there in 2nd week of April for 3 nights. I had chosen this resort after good amount of research and I must tell, I wasn't disappointed at all. We stayed in suite (103 - is the best and most spacious) with 2 kids, it's like 1 BHK flat, having ample space for kids to enjoy themselves while parents...

This is our second time in Villa retreat .. Will be my first preference if I visit Kodai again . We stayed for two nights with my parents . The view from Classic room with valley view is to die for. It matches with the best valley views anywhere in kodai. However the room badly needs maintenance - chipped flooring...

Right from the time we entered the Hotel, we were spoilt. The room given to us was perfect..... It had the most perfect views that took our breath away. It was in the middle of bustling Kodai but peaceful and tranquil. Shyam and the staff looked after our evry need. The restaurant was great and we really enjoyed the Breakfasts....

Let me start with the good things: really loved the location - next to Coaker's walk, ambience, nice garden, room theme and the initial hospitality. Food was where they were horrible to the core. Lunch: Ordered Kadai Paneer - It was more like some paneer, half cooked vegetables in a gravy so liquid that we stopped ordering Kadai Paneer anywhere...

Good and neatly maintained, for family it's ideal location whereas its walkable distance to all main attractions of Kodai. Food was tasty and good quality & quantity. I requested for late checkout with minimum charges but it was diplomatically by saying high tariff- during non season they should have extended me grace time for check out... Good trip and stay
